A sinatra extension that provides oauth authentication to github. Find out more about enabling your application at github's oauth quickstart.
To test it out on localhost set your callback url to 'http://localhost:9393/auth/github/callback'
The gist of this project is to provide a few things easily:
- authenticate a user against github's oauth service
- provide an easy way to make API requests for the authenticated user
- optionally restrict users to a specific github organization
- optionally restrict users to a specific github team
% gem install sinatra_auth_github
Running the Example
% gem install bundler % bundle install % GITHUB_CLIENT_ID="<from GH>" GITHUB_CLIENT_SECRET="<from GH>" bundle exec rackup -p9393
There's an example app in spec/app.rb.
Example App Functionality
You can simply authenticate via GitHub by hitting http://localhost:9393
You can check organization membership by hitting http://localhost:9393/orgs/github
You can check team membership by hitting http://localhost:9393/teams/42
All unsuccessful authentication requests get sent to the securocat denied page.
The extension also provides a simple way to access the GitHub API, by providing an authenticated Octokit::Client for the user.
def repos github_user.api.repositories end
For more information on API access, refer to the octokit documentation.
